Well, I did get my exercise for today, Saturday! It's snowing like mad. I shoveled, walked to the store, shoveled some more--53 minutes so far and I may have to shovel more.
I declined to go with Biker Buddy and Piano boy to the piano festival and to buy the guitar. Piano Boy was being beastly. He dressed inappropriately, wouldn't do his practicing or clean the bird cage, which he was supposed to have done on Thursday. He does almost nothing to help out around here and expects us to buy him whatever he wants. I don't want to be a part of that. I think relationships should be more reciprocal. I don't expect perfection from a teenager, but I would not choose to reward him for bad behavior, which is what I think Biker Buddy is doing. So I simply choose not to participate. I'm a little sad because I'd like to be there when he gets his guitar to see his excitement etc. But I cannot condone getting him something as a gift, no strings attached, when he is refusing his chores. I think my husband has gone insane. It's not that I don't want to get him a guitar--I DO! I just think he should do his chores FIRST.
The fact that it is snowing and blowing pushed me over the edge anyway.
I got everything I need, I think, to make spring rolls, so I am excited to go try it.
